Blake Hoena's interest in mythology began at a young age while watching the old movies, Clash of the Titans (1981) and Jason and the Argonauts (1963), with claymation monsters and bad special effects. It was the stories that he really loved and they inspired him to create his own and become a children's book author. Among the many books he has authored are retellings of the Perseus and Medusa myth, which has always been one of his favorites.
